Four ways to make a tough decision a piece of cake
You have to ask yourself these four questions to make or take the right decision
1. What is the best result if I did this?: let us start from the best. If you took that decision, what would be the best possible outcome. Score on a scale of one to ten. When positive enough, you know what to do.
2. What is the best result if I don’t?: just like there is a best result upon your embarking on that journey, there also can be a best result when you don’t do it.ask yourself and like the first, score yourself on a scale of one to ten.
3. What is the worst result if I did this?: now if you did this, what is the worst result? You also have to know this as it would aid your decision making.
4. What is the worst if I didn’t?: if you didn’t do it this way what is the consequence? You know this and you’re 95% through that tough decision.

Here is a summary of the four steps mentioned above:- A surgeon knows if he don’t perform a tricky procedure the patient would die…he also knows that the worst result of performing the procedure is death so he’ll go ahead to the operating room; at least he has a chance. So you need to ask these questions and answer them. And score on a scale of one to ten
After these decisions have been taking, score them. A seven and above is perfect,don’t think twice, go for it. A four to six needs careful thought before embarking upon it. A two and three is risky.(yes, risks are worth taking)…only to be taken if you are brave…but a zero to one? I haven’t thought about that,tell me what you think of it in the comment box.
